Description

THIS IS A GENUINE MUSEUM GRADE ROLEX MARCONI TABLE CLOCK OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. THE CLOCK STANDS APPROX; 5.1 INCHES TALL. THE STAND & FRAME IS MADE OF MARKED STERLING SILVER. AFTER DEALING IN FINE ANTIQUES , DECORATIVE ART'S , ANTIQUE JEWELLERY & VINTAGE WATCHES FOR OVER 30 YEARS , I CAN HONESTLY SAY THIS IS THE BEST CLOCK OF ANY KIND , REGARDLESS OF VALUES , THAT I HAVE HANDLED IN OVER 30 YEARS !!! IT IS SIMPLY EXCEPTIONAL. A GENUINE MUSEUM GRADE PIECE! THE COLOURS ARE NOTHING SHORT OF BRILLIANT , WITH ZERO 'FADING'. THE DETAIL & AMOUNT OF WORK THAT AHS GONE INTO THIS PIECE IS UNBELIEVABLE !! IT IS SIMPLY EXCEPTIONAL & I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT IT PRESENTS MUCH BETTER THAN IT DOES IN THESE PHOTO'S EVEN !! WHEN THIS ROLEX MARCONI TABLE CLOCK WAS MADE , c1922 ~ THEY WAS NOT ONE ROLEX WRIST WATCH THAT COST AS MUCH AS THIS CLOCK TO PRODUCE!!!!!!!!!!! ~ THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE , THROUGH AN INVESTORS EYE'S !! THE ENAMEL WORK IS A MASTER CLASS IN CHAMPLEVE` ENAMEL & AFTER MONTHS & MONTHS OF DEDICATED RESEARCH ~ THIS IS THE ONLY KNOWN CHAMPLEVE ENAMEL {or which ever one prefers to call this form of enamel work} DECORATED CLOCK OR IN FACT TIME PIECE ~ TO FEATURE JAZZ AGE TRUE ART DECO SCENES AS DECORATION TO THE TIME PIECE! THE SCENE IS NOTHING SHORT OF OUTSTANDING !! IT HAS , NO DOUBT , BEEN CREATED BY A MASTER ENAMELER & STANDS ALMOST 100 YR'S LATER , IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION WITH STRONG VIBRANT COLOURS TO THE EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN !! APPEARING ALMOST 3D WITH THE HIGHER SECTION APPEARING VERTICAL ~ WHILE THE OLOWER AREA APPEARS FLAT OR LEVEL ~ WITH PAN LIKE FIGURES DANCING ON THE LEFT SIDE WHILST SOME NATIVES ARE DANCING TOWARDS THEM FROM THE RIGHT HAND SIDE!! WHO BY & WHOM FOR ? THAT IS THE DIFFICULT ONE! I FIND IT VERY HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THIS "WAS MADE TO MARKET" !! THE COSTS MUST HAVE BEEN EXORBITANT TO MAKE SUCH A PIECE & CLEARLY WOULD HAVE BEEN TAILORED FOR THE VERY UPPER ESCUTCHEONS OF SOCIETY!! THERE WAS NOT ONE ROLEX WATCH IN THE WORLD , MADE TO MARKET , THAT WOULD HAVE COST ANYWHERE NEAR WHAT THIS EXCEPTIONAL & IMPORTANT ROLEX MARCONI CLOCK WOULD HAVE COST TO MAKE. THE TIME INVOLVED WITH MAKING THE ENTIRE PIECE WOULD HAVE EXCLUDED IT FROM BEING MADE TO MARKET & WITH SO FEW PEOPLE OF THE SKILL LEVELS TO CREATE THE CHAMPLEVE ENAMEL FRAME & THE COMPLEXITY'S & LOSS RATE OF CREATING THESE MINI MASTERPIECES IN ENAMEL ALONE WOULD HAVE MADE THIS TOTALLY UN-VIABLE TO PRODUCE IN NUMBERS! THEREFORE THE NEXT ONE IS , WHY OR WHO WAS IT MADE FOR!!? WAS IT ONE OF THE HIERARCHY AT ROLEX , WAS IT A SMALL RUN OF ONE DOZEN OR SIMILAR ?? IF ANYONE CAN THROW ANY CERTAINTY ON THAT POINT , IT WILL BE SINCERELY APPRECIATED. THE "FULL ON" JAZZ AGE PATTERN REALLY LOOKS TRULY AMAZING ~ THE COLOURS ARE BRIGHT & EYE CATCHING , NO LESS THAN 5 DIFFERENT COLOURS ADD LIFE & MOVEMENT TO THIS MUSEUM GRADE CLOCK. SUCH BOTH A HIGHLY COMPLEX DESIGN TO CREATE & SUCH A LABORIOUS & DIFFICULT PIECE TO HAVE MADE ~ WITH 110 DOZEN DIFFERENT THONGS THAT CAN & OFTEN DO GO WRONG IN FIRING SUCH COMPLEX & MULTI COLOURED A PIECE! THE ROLEX MARCONI ENAMEL DIAL IS IN MINT CONDITION ~ WITH ZERO CRACKS OR CHIPS TO THE ORIGINAL DIAL !! LARGE ARABIC NUMERALS WITH IRRELEVANT AGING TO SOME ~ WITH THE BRASS & GOLD PLATED BRASS KNULLED BEZEL LOOKING ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL & ADD'S FURTHER CLASS & STYLE TO THIS STUNNING PIECE. SOO SIMILAR TO THE BEZELS , BOTH FRONT & BACK , OF THE SOON TO COME ROLEX OYSTER !!!! ORIGINAL MERCEDES HANDS ARE RETAINED , WITH A VERY MINOR 'TIP STRAIGHTENING' NEEDED , APPROX; 1 MIN'S EFFORT. THE ROLEX MARCONI MECHANISM IS RUNNING JUST AS YOU WOULD EXPECT IT TOO , STRONG & ACCURATE! FOR THOSE THAT HAVE "SWALLOWED THE TRIPE" ABOUT MARCONI BEING AN INFERIOR TIME PIECE TO SIGNED ROLEX TIME PIECE'S , I SUGGEST THAT YOU START DONG FURTHER RESEARCH & SAY RIGHT AWAY FROM "FORUMS" FOR STARTERS!! WE HAVE HAD AND SEEN SEVERAL EARLY ROLEX WRISTWATCHES WITH UNTOUCHED ORIGINAL DIALS WHICH HAVE BOTH NAMES TO THE DIALS ~ ROLEX MARCONI & EVEN ... Rolex MARCONI ~ with the Marconi name in slightly larger font size {not to the size extent above} ** MARCONI WERE EQUAL TOO & AT TIMES SUPERIOR TO ROLEX ** MARCONI WAS CREATED BY HANS WILSDORF TO CAPTURE A HIGHER % , A LARGER SLICE OF THE TOP END MARKET ~ VIA HAVING '2 IRONS IN THE FIRE' SO TO SPEAK. NOT UNLIKE MANY MANY COMPANIES OF ALL SORTS DO TODAY , STILL , THEY "OPEN THE COMPETITION" ~ TO SECURE A LARGER PERCENTAGE OF THE MARKET !!! NOT AS A SECOND LEVEL BRAND , SUCH AS ROLCO Or TUDOR WAS FOR EXAMPLE , BUT AN EQUAL QUALITY BRAND THAT WOULD SELL TO THE SAME 'WELL HEALED PEOPLE' THAT BOUGHT TOP END WATCHES , SUCH AS ROLEX. YET FOR WHATEVER REASON , DIDN'T BUY ROLEX OR WOULD BUY BOTH! THE ABOVE IS RECORDED FACT. FACTUAL EVIDENCE OF SUCH EASILY PROVIDED , IF REQUIRED , TO GENUINE PURCHASER. THIS EXCEPTIONAL MUSEUM GRADE RARITY IS , AT THIS STAGE , THE ONLY KNOWN ROLEX MARCONI CLOCK IN THE WORLD OF THIS EXACT TYPE ! PROBABLY WILL BE SOLD VIA A LEADING U.K. AUCTION HOUSE IN LATE U.K. SUMMER 17 , IF NOT SOLD HERE BEFORE HAND. THERE ARE HOW MANY THOUSANDS OF SUBMARINERS OR ROLEX OYSTERS MADE >>>>> HOW MANY OF THIS MODEL DID ROLEX MAKE UNDER ANY DIAL NAME ??? SO FAR , ONE! SERIOUS & GENUINE EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST IN THIS , POSSIBLY TOTALLY UNIQUE / ONE OFF , ROLEX MARCONI ST.SILVER ENAMELED TABLE CLOCK CAN BE SENT VIA EMAIL AND WE USUALLY RESPOND ON THE SAME DAY.
